2007 Interleague Play begins

On tap for this weekend is the 10th edition of Major League Baseball's Interleague Play. (Incidentally, it is also the 10th anniversary of the D-Rays and D-Backs this year, which makes me feel REALLY old.)

The novelty of Interleague Play has long worn off for me, although it is nice to see different teams in the ballpark once in awhile. However, I do appreciate the so-called "rivalry series" which pair up intercity/regionally close teams, as opposed to the other random interleague dates. This weekend features the Battle of the North (MIN-MIL), the Subway Series (NYM-NYY), the L series (ChC-ChW), the Freeway Series (LAA-LAD), and the Battle of Ohio (CLE-CIN), among others. These series are always meaningful to the fans and it are always large draws at the park. I'm looking forward to watching Yankees-Mets on Sunday Night Baseball this weekend, and hopefully the Crew can sweep the Twinkies at Miller Park.


Twins L (18-22)
